The scrapes are the floorboards hitting the ground. No, they do not hold up the bike, they are hinged. The exhaust may touch at times but only if you've got the boards completely folded up and a lot of weight transferred to the rear.

And no - its not like "riding with training wheels". The bike really isn't that wide - about 32" at the tips of the bars. Looks wider, sure, but it isn't.

Fact is - tossing something that size through that tight course is a LOT harder than it looks.

Oh - incidentally, at low speeds, those big cop glides handle much better than most sport bikes.

They do - when you try to muscle them around. If you ride the bike, instead of trying to force them to do what you want, they react completely differently.

I'm not saying HD makes the best bikes in the world. They don't. However, they have the heavy-weight cruiser design down cold.

Those things may look heavy and ungainly, but they aren't.

Nope - kickstand never touches the ground.
